We are very pleased to announce that Manfred Malzahn will be making his debut AAMF performance during the ‘Acoustic Night‘ concert on Thursday, 31st January.

He was a member of “2+1”, “Patchwork” and “Dreirad” in Germany, “High Ground” and “The Solan Company” in Scotland, “The Living Stones” in Malawi and “Free Association” in the UAE, where he has been living since 1998.
He started writing his own songs in the 1980s; some of his lyrics were set to music and recorded by the German bands “Distant Friends”, “Blind Summit” and “Puzzlepie”. He also wrote the libretto for a musical play that was staged in Germany in the mid-1990s.
